company template moving left nav box over article. Why?

Its on a different wikia I run, but its template related. http://sidmeiersalphacentauri.wikia.com/wiki/Firaxis_Games The template for company info seems to cause it to take the entire left section of the wikia, and put it over the article. I look over it, and I can't see anywhere that would cause this to happen. Strange error. Any ideas? Dream Focus 05:23, September 7, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, the problem is originating in w:c:sidmeiersalphacentauri:Template:Video game companies of the United States or one of its subtemplates - I would recommend not using that template (as in, delete it, and remove transclusions from any articles) and instead just create your own navbox if you really need one for that purpose (currently, it's just a solid wall of redlinks with a single, solitary bluelink, so there's no point in having it anyways). I'm not sure why, but for some reason, Wikia really doesn't seem to like importing some templates - I have never seen something like this happen on Wikia before, and every time, the code *looks* like Wikia's software should be able to render it without any problems.
On a side note, I would recommend keeping the pipe character at the beginning of lines in stuff like infobox templates, instead of at the end - it is much easier to keep track of, and reduces the likelihood of edits breaking at least a parameter, if not the whole box. ダイノガイ千?!? · Talk⇒Dinoguy1000 06:25, September 7, 2010 (UTC)
Fixed it. I just removed different parts until I found out which one was causing it. [1] Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Dream Focus 12:35, September 7, 2010 (UTC)
